Speed: it’s so slow. Real lag in clicking any message before seeing it loaded in reading pane. Lag clicking on a new mail folder and see contents. Very slow loading of HTML mail contents after ticking show HTML.
Replying to email, takes several seconds to load up prior email as a quote, before I can start typing anything.
Many HTML emails received don’t display anything at all until I click to load HTML. Should be feasible to display some raw text stripped of HTML tags. Maybe an option to auto-load HTML from a whitelist or from emails in contacts list would help here.
Syncing speed: I regularly see a ‘sync n / 1234’ messages slowing ticking up.
Excessive browser CPU usage. With RunBox open in Firefox v76, CPU usage of Firefox jumps from 3% to 40-50%. I’m running an Intel i5-7300 2.6Ghz laptop with 16GB ram on Win 10, a web based mail client shouldn’t cause the fans on a laptop to crank up to max!
Deleting emails doesn’t update display. Open message, click delete. Message remains in mail list view and as a non-read message in count on folder list. Never properly updates display until I click another folder and then click back.
GUI oddites: with mail pane split vertically (list at top, message display below), when clicking the bottom most email visible in list, it triggers column sorting! Surely, only clicking a column header should trigger sorting and direction…
On mail viewing pane, too much vertical screen estate is taken up by toolbar, headers, a blank line below headers, another blank line with a html warning icon on right, then yet another line telling me HTML has been sanitised… I want to see my mail, not blank lines, redundant messages and padding!
At the moment I’m finding it barely useable, only good for emergencies when I’m not near a decent mail client application or my phone. Having come from WHM/CPanel installations with RoundCubeMail or SquirrelMail the user experience is deeply disappointing.
On the plus side, the UI looks clean and neat from a cosmetic point of view.
